Ch'Lu: Campfire meets Kirtan meets Club
Ch'Lu is the new persona of Camilla Mathias. As singer, guitarist, composer, actress, lyricist, linguist, artist and Ishaya monk, she connects between borders and cultures (to date in thirteen languages), overlapping passions to stimulate and inspire.
She wants to entertain you into feeling less alone, anxious or stressed and more like the best version of yourself; connected, fulfilled and eager to get out of bed each day. Ch'Lu transmits the healing and calming vibrations of Sanskrit and other beautiful languages to a wider and contemporary audience in a unique and engaging way.
With a Campfire-meets-Kirtan-meets-Club vibe, you can either chant, chill or chuckle. Choosing and fusing between ethereal harmonies, evocative language, classical guitar arpeggiation and ambient beats; throwing in a contemporary edge, humour and the element of surprise.
You can catch the free Ch'Lu live-streams most weeks here:
Pronounced ChooLOO, the unique Sanskrit name was conceived by Camilla's Jyotisha (The Vedic study of timing) mentor, specifically for her work expanding consciousness through creativity and performance.
You can listen to Ch'Lu's magical mantra soundscapes on the world's largest meditation app Insight-Timer and download and read lyrics on Bandcamp. She is also working on an album of original soundtracks based on the Mandukya Upanishads, a sacred set of Sanskrit verses, the first of which also now features alongside her repertoire on : Insight-Timer
